Flaming Lips Get Bloody and Weird in ‘Ashes in the Air’

NSFW clip has nudity, dead bodies and a baby with a man’s face

Blood, nudity and totally bonkers special effects: It's the essential combination for every weird Flaming Lips video, and their new clip for "Ashes in the Air" has all of that – and some cannibalism, too. The song, featuring Bon Iver, comes from the Lips' 2012 double-LP of collaborations, The Flaming Lips and Heady FwendsIn the video, a spaceman treks through a wasteland filled with naked, half-dead bodies while carrying a baby with the face of a grown man. When they finally arrive at the spaceship, it seems like all might finally end well – but if you thought the wood chipper sequence in Fargo was brutal, you might want to avert your eyes. The Flaming Lipsnew album The Terror will be out April 16th.
